    I think there's currently some uncertainty about what got requested here. If it goes into the direction of exporting prototypes (as actual prototypes), I entirely concur (there might be scenarios where you can't share an online prototype with a client).

    If, however, this is about some "Export for production" functionality, which – as many have put it – should replace "Muse" and spit out some code which can get uploaded to a server to "have a website," I'm absolutely against it.

    First of all, Adobe XD is a rapid prototyping/design tool. It is not a WYSIWYG editor. Thankfully, the days when almost every website got created in such an editor are over, and I don't want to return to that stage.

    There is a reason web development is a professional market. To design and develop websites, you have to understand the limitations of the web as a platform. Sites aren't just something which you can "export" from a design – they're too complicated for that. There are far too many factors which a design tool can't "know" about a design which are crucial for implementing that website. Also, many designs can't get "translated" to the web.

    XD is a professional tool for designing (amongst other things websites). The purpose for XD is to design something with it and hand it off to a developer, who can then implement the design.

    If you must have an export to HTML functionality, take a look at the plugin market. There are already some solutions out there, and I'm sure there are more to come (as I've said, though – don't think they'll generate great websites for you).

    Taking XD into this direction ("replacing Muse") would mean turning away from the professional market, which is very it currently does a great job of completing with Sketch and Co.

    While my plugin isn't able to automatically fill text fields on creation, it may be able to serve as an intermediate solution (it allows you to insert placeholder text – e.g., Lorem Ipsum – with some adjustable settings). As of today, you can download the plugin "Lorem Ipsum" from the discover plugins panel inside XD and from my Website (https://xdplugins.pabloklaschka.de). It also allows inserting placeholder text with a keyboard shortcut, which was also mentioned in the comments.

    Disclaimer: I am the creator of the plugin. Therefore, I am not 100 % unbiased and this could be seen as an advertisement. Please note, however, that the plugin is completely free (and everything is ad-free), so I don't earn anything if you use it. I'm just putting this info in here since it seems related and maybe someone finds it useful ;-)

    While I understand you don't want to use Lorem Ipsum, but since @DaveChap "requested" it, I'll mention it: In the meantime, you can use my "Lorem Ipsum" plugin available as of today. It allows you to insert placeholder text (e.g., "Lorem Ipsum," but also variants in other languages) and some more functions.
